Yes it works but I can not get my older backups to work. But the backup I made on the latest CWM worked perfectly

Possible solution. Revert to CWM 4.x, revert to your older backup, update to CWM 5.x, create new backup. Can CWM5.x restore it then? If so, then this kind of jerry-rig update should be done for all backups that people have made before making the permanent switch to 5.x. This is what I plan to do, but I'm not gonna be in a good place to flash for a little while.

If anyone can confirm this solution as working, I'll get a separate thread going as a [How-to] for updating to CWM 5.x. PMs are fine, replys to this message are fine too. Keep me posted.

All the best,

So I have a back up I made with 5.0.1.0 and I got stuck on the boot screen when I tried to restore minutes later. I had to reinstall my ROM to get my phone to work. Can I retore the same back up with 5.0.2.1…?

I upgraded, made a nandroid, everything worked as expected. Assumed my old backups wouldn't work, though, so I got rid of them.

I just restored a backup I made from a version 3.x.x. Something. It worked perfect, but then rom manager wouldn't work on that ROM. Clockwork recovery worked fine though, and I restored my current configuration that way after making a fresh backup of the old one. I guess I got lucky. Thanks koush, must have been a busy weekend.

5.x backups before this build don't restore. Guess I'm SOL on the backup i actually want to restore :(
Use android kitchen to turn your backup into an update zip file so you can flash it like a normal ROM. I did this but i am not great with typing out everything needed to do this. Google it since this is a long process to get everything setup. Shopping list.
1 java development tools
2 cygwin
3 android kitchen
4 a computer (should have been number one)
5 abilty to follow instructions

You should be fine I did this with 2 very important backups so i can just flash them instead of depending on restore. I can even rename them like a radio and flash in HBoot in really bad cases :)

if your backup was made on a older 5x recovery your probally out of luck. But the 5.0.2.1 will restore old backups from 4x

5.0.2.1 not working so perfectly for me, the issue (& only issue) I am having with it & honestly I have had the same issue with all version of cwm but for 3.1.0.2, that issue being simply rebooting into recovery, it sometimes takes 2-3 attempts before it will reboot into recovery, The only version of cwm that I never once had trouble getting into recovery was 3.1.0.2, every release after that I have had the issue, so Im back to 3.1.0.2 for now.

How are you rebooting into recovery? As far as I know, there are 3 ways:

1) computer -> adb reboot recovery
2) advanced power options from main power button menu
3) from within ROM Manager

Which have you used, and do you have this problem with all methods? I ask because I've had this problem too, but it's never consistent or reliably reproducible.
